Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Record it all with simplicity. With up to 300 hours of recording time on the built-in 512 MB flash memory, the ICD-B600 digital voice recorder makes it easy to capture class lectures, business meetings or even your own memos. The single function buttons on the front make simple operations easily accessible and the selectable microphone sensitivity lets you adjust the recording levels to your specific needs. Four message folders are included for organising your messages, and the voice-activated operation makes getting started fast and convenient.

The ICD-B600 digital voice recorder is small and lightweight which makes it convenient to slip in your suit pocket or laptop bag. With the unit being solid state flash based there’s no additional costs or messing with tapes - everything you need to record is in one unit. It gives you up to 396 messages and allows you to separate your lists all in one place. The 4 message folders can be used for different applications, such as business memos, correspondence, personal reminders and more.

With the VOR function you can save valuable recording time. VOR stops the recording during silent pauses then begins recording again without missing a single syllable thanks to the digital buffer. The ICD-B600 digital voice recorder has a date and time stamp so you’ll never forget when a recording was taken. It has an option of 3 recording modes which allows you to choose the quality of recording depending on how much time you need; LP mode provides 301h 35m, SP mode 163h 10m and HQ mode 61h 10m.

This does not come with a USB cable as it says in the description so you cannot connect it to a computer but apart from this it is a great product for the price. The sound quality is good and it has plenty of internal memory. It's also fairly easy to use after a quick read of the instructions (which do tell you how to turn it off!). Would reccomend.

Verified Purchase
*Poor Audio Quality
*Folder switching over complicated
*Unnecessary packaging

I bought this item to record university lectures as I had been using my phone's (LG KP500) voice recorder function but was dissatisfied with the quality and range. My girlfriend had bought a Olympus dictaphone which I was impressed by the audio quality. I assumed that this was because it was a dedicated dictaphone and so looked for one for myself. I, however, could not afford the same model as hers which had USB PC connection and so went for this cheaper one.

First off I was very disappointed with the AUDIO QUALITY- its HQ mode is about the same as or perhaps worse than that of my mobile phone's quality, not what I'd expect from a dedicated dictaphone. Its range was also similar to my phone's when it was on the 'Low' setting, but when it was set to 'High' range it was much wider, though unfortunately this meant it picked up alot of background 'clatter' and a slight buzz from the dictaphone itself. My girlfriend's Olympus has what I'd describe as FM radio quality- very clear, rich audio as if listening to a radio broadcast. The Sony is very tinny in quality and sounds seems to blend into one and interfere with each other, making hearing what a person is saying sometimes quite difficult.

The other problem I found was to do with the usability of the product, in particular SWITCHING BETWEEN THE 'FOLDERS' you can use to organise your recordings. This is something I need to do quite frequently as I have a different 'folder' for the lectures from each subject. On other models I've seen there is a simple button you can use to quickly switch between folders.
Unfortunately on the Sony, to change folders I have to hold down the 'menu' button for a few seconds to enter a menu system.

This miniature voice recorder does exactly what it says on the tin. It is of minute proportions and is extremely easy to use. The actual recordings are crisp and clear and the sound activated feature works a treat. I am extremely pleased with the product and cannot fault it. At such a bargain basement price from Amazon, I would highly recommend it.

First class bit of kit. Does what it says on the tin (very well) Only down side is you can not link it to, and back up to your PC. However, this is reflected in the price. If you don't need that function, then worth investing in.

I bought this little recorder from amazon after reading the reviews. I must say I have been very much satisfied with myself. Being a techno geek myself, i dont get impressed with tech easily. But for the money this little recorder is worth it. It serves me a perfect companion in office or meeting when i cant recall something someone has said. The recording capacity is more than enough for day to day life. I havent even used 20% of it after a month. The best thing i wold like to point out about this recorder is it ability to recorded conversation even in noisy surroundings. Like this one i was in pub with loud music playing and i had left it on just for the fun of it, and it recorded everything (even though i couldnt hear the people clearly). like it filters the voice from surrounding noise or something. This also means you can use it only to record voice (its a dictaphone) and not other sounds like music. The sensitivity is high as well, it would record every little word that you can hear. In high sensitivity mode sometimes its too sensitive , like you leave in your pocket, so it you can hear the rustling as well. But this does not mean that the words are muffled. They are crystal clear. I always leave the bitrate in high quality setting given the large memory available. Its been few weeks now and the supplied battery still shows full. One negative aspect i would like point out is the fact that the play button may get accidently pressed when in pocket. so suggest you to leave the hold button on when not in use. Not a big deal anyway. Definitely recommended. A steal for the price actually.

Purchased for business use and have been very impressed. Easy set up and didn't have any issues with the instructions. More then enough memory for my requirements, have set as standard play. The digital buffer worked well compared to other ones which I have used. Overall 10/10. Quick delivery from Amazon as well.

It has a good quality of sound, and certainly stores enough information for my requirements. Its a shame it didnt come with headphones. But this is just personal preference and does not impact on the quality of the product. Very easy to use and the instructions are easy to follow.
